As fans weve been rightly swept up by the performances of Harry Wilson at Derby but I think Herbie's play at Doncaster has been overlooked sowewhat. I know it is a League down from the Championship, but he is virtually MOTM on a weekly basis every despite being kicked from pillar to post. Great write-up from the Bristol Press about his game against Rovers yesterday. Doncaster Rovers produced a dominant display as they defeated Bristol Rovers 4-0 at The Memorial Ground. The star performer who caught the eye was Herbie Kane, who will have savoured the victory a little more than the other Doncaster players. On-loan Liverpool Herbie Kane has been making waves for Doncaster this season, and it has seen him nominated for the FIFA Golden Boy award this year. He was nominated alongside players like Kylian Mbappe, Trent Alexander-Arnold, and Ben Woodburn. The victory will be even sweeter for Kane thanks to his roots. Despite being on-loan from Liverpool, Kane was born in Bristol and is a massive Bristol City fan. He was part of the Academy on the red side of Bristol until he was 14 when he was signed by Liverpool in 2014. Comparisons have been made to former Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard with Kane making driving runs forward as well as being excellent in the air. Kane has represented England at Under 17’s including being named in the European Championships in the summer of 2015. Kane has flourished in League One this season scoring 5 goals in 25 appearances for Doncaster this year including a brace in the FA Cup first round against Chorley, only John Marquis has scored more goals for Rovers this season. The midfielder isn’t afraid to shoot as he shown this season having scored a host of long-range goals this season. The 20-year-old signed for Donny in August and is on loan until January. He showed just why he is so highly rated with an excellent display against Bristol Rovers where he tormented The Gas midfield and defence all afternoon. Kane looked head and shoulders above most players on the pitch from the first minute until the last. He wanted to be involved in the game as much as possible and provided plenty of attacking support from midfield. With the ball at feet, he was exceptional with flicks and stepovers beating the Rovers defenders throughout. When he dropped deep his range of passing was superb and set James Coppinger and Mallik Wilks away down the flanks consistently. His tenacity was evident as on multiple occasions he would be tackled to the ground but still retain possession and offload the ball to players around him. Scouts flocking to watch exciting Liverpool attacker lighting up League One The biggest contribution Kane made, however, was some brilliant trickery on the left side of the penalty area before he put a pin-point cross into the box for Tom Anderson to head home to give Doncaster a 3-0 lead just after half-time. Defensively he wasn’t as effective as he was going forward, Kane tried to get back and make tackles but needs to be a bit more assertive and stronger in the tackle. If he improves the defensive side of his game, he has all the credentials of a top player. The victory for Grant McCann’s side sees them move into the play-off positions in League One and are now unbeaten in six games and will be looking to carry on that record when they face Scunthorpe at the Keepmoat next Saturday.
Lampard seems to think we can recall Harry, although I think he is certainly best served staying with the Rams and hopefully playing a key role in a promotion push. In any case it seems to be a great relationship between the clubs which isn't always the case with loanees. Derby boss Frank Lampard has confirmed Liverpool can recall Harry Wilson from his loan spell in January. Wilson, 21, is the Rams’ top goalscorer this season with eight, featuring a stunning brace against Swansea on Saturday And his form has not gone unnoticed by Liverpool fans, who have suggested he makes an early return to Anfield. While Lampard is desperate to keep his star player for the remainder of his season-long loan, the former Chelsea midfielder admits he could lose Wilson next month. Asked if he can reassure Derby fans that this will not happen, Lampard said: “There is an element where Liverpool can call him back in early January. "That is a conversation between the clubs. “Liverpool run a fantastic department in terms of looking after their loans players. We have a lot of chat with them. We will just have to see how that goes. "At the minute he’s our player, and of course we want him to stay our player for the course of the season because he is contributing. Since Harry came there has been constant dialogue with myself, Liverpool and Harry. It is very open conversation. "For me, he is here to progress, and he is progressing well. I hope he stays with us because I think we can work well for each other.”
